Pros

The company at the highest levels has a sound base and strategic outlook. As a privately held company they have flexibility that isn't seen in public companies and you can tell they really do care about things.

Cons

The translation is lost in middle management and the companies ability to deliver on their 'development' and 'people' opportunities. Some of this may be symptomatic of the industry. A true global outlook is needed w/in the company. Pay is really below average and if you want to have ANY opportunity for advancement you really need to get on the client facing side of the business - at least you can get a 'title' and take that to other companies for leverage. Very title heavy with client-facing positions. Very, very slow to offer opportunities and develop their people - a lot of talk but no solid action.

Do NOT expect to make much money unless you are able to come in at a high salary and position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay disparity between 'titled' positions and others. Middle Mgmt just doesn't get what it takes to develop people - on the same hand, upper mgmt needs to commit the resources to this and sometimes those resources are simply not cutting your staffing to the bare bones!
